by introducing them to a growing and active life with Christ.
The above statement isn’t just a catchy slogan, it’s what IMPACT is all about. A life with Jesus Christ is exciting, challenging, and the most rewarding experience a person can have and we want to introduce and encourage middle school and high school students to begin and develop that kind of life. You can download a detailed copy of our Philosophy of Ministry here.
By being a part of IMPACT, you’ll be a part of a group of your peers who are developing that same relationship with Christ. You can expect to be a part of fun and meaningful youth worship events, deeper discussion in a smaller group of students your same age, and lots of other opportunities for special events like worship events, mission trips, retreats, and other monthly special activities.
PARENTS: We require that students participating in off-campus activities have an annual Medical Release Form filed with the Church Office. This form provides important medical information and serves to protect both your student and the church in the unlikely event of an emergency medical situation. If the student is under 18 years of age, this form must be notarized. For your convenience, we will be organizing opportunities for you to meet with a notary here at the church.
Regular Weekly Schedule
LIFT - Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m.
GROW Groups - Sundays at 9:00 a.m. and 10:30am
Grade based fellowship groups that "do life together." You may talk about what's happening at school, the application of the teaching focus for the week, pray for and with each other, do mission work together, and just have a great time! Our GROW Groups are on Sunday Morning from 9:00-10:00am and a second hour from 10:30-11:30am. Both Grow Group hours are identical to one another.
The church isn't a building. The Church is a body with Jesus Christ as its head — a body that lives, breathes, moves, works, plays, shares, learns, hurts, and so on. As our world continues to cautiously recover from COVID, we're finding that perhaps now more so than ever, we need some things we've been missing. We need to love and be loved. We need prayerful intercession on each other's behalves. We need fellowship with others. We need a deeper knowledge of God and His Word. We need a LIFT.
Converge is a corporate worship event specifically designed for Middle and High School students. Students are encouraged to invite their friends that may not normally go to church. Each service includes music, prayer, games, and a time of opening God's Word.
